If you use Docker, Glances can help you to monitor your containers. Glances uses the Docker API through the docker-py library.

It is possible to define limits and actions from the configuration file under the [docker] section:

[docker]
# Global containers' thresholds for CPU and MEM (in %)
cpu_careful=50
cpu_warning=70
cpu_critical=90
mem_careful=20
mem_warning=50
mem_critical=70
# Per container thresholds
containername_cpu_careful=10
containername_cpu_warning=20
containername_cpu_critical=30
containername_cpu_critical_action=echo {{Image}} {{Id}} {{cpu}} > /tmp/container_{{name}}.alert

You can use all the variables ({{foo}}) available in the Docker plugin.
